Description: The Citation is a family of business jets developed by Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron owned company, to meet the requirements of customers operating from regional to intercontinental routes. Citation jets are powered by two turbofan engines and cruise at high speeds while delivering outstanding comfort to the passengers in their spacious cabins. Cessna has received more than 5,300 Citation jets orders since the program inception in 1975. As of early 2008, the Cessna Citation production models are: CJ1+, CJ2+, CJ3, Encore+, XLS+, X, Sovereign, and Mustang with CJ4 and Columbus models to join Cessna's product line in 2010 and 2014 respectively.

The Citation Ten was announced in October 2010 as a larger and advanced version of the Citation X business jet equipped with the Garmin G5000 avionics suite. The new jet is powered by more efficient Rolls Royce AE 3007 C2 high-flow-fan turbines, each rated at 7,034 pounds of thrust. The AE 3007 C2 gives the Citation Ten a 4 percent improvement in takeoff thrust, 9 percent improvement in climb performance, 7 percent improvement in cruise thrust and an additional 1.4 percent improvement in specific fuel consumption compared to Citation X. First flight of the new Citation Ten will be in late 2011, with certification and first delivery in 2013.

The Citation Ten features a 15-inch longer fuselage for more cabin space, winglets for more efficient performance, a new electrical system, dual lithium-ion batteries, new avionics, autothrottle, a redesigned cabin with new interior seats and cabin appointments, and a proprietary fiber optic-based cabin management system. Performance is also enhanced with a 211 nautical mile (391 kilometer) increase in range at high-speed cruise, a 214-pound increase in maximum payload and a faster rate of climb direct to 45,000 feet.
